About the hosts

This year we've invited talented artists Penny Ferguson of Min Pin, Esther Sandler of Togetherness Design and textile designer Tara Whalley to create a kids play area with an Australian outback theme featuring cardboard-cut-out photo booths, magical murals, and free art activities.


Penny Ferguson is a designer and illustrator originally from Perth. When she's not drawing and painting she makes fine jewellery, ceramics and textiles for her label Min Pin.
